Care

In Galatians 6:10, we are encouraged, “as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” We see in Acts 2:42-47 the early Christian community generously taking care of one another, and in the body of Christ all of their needs were being met.

Our Community Groups are the primary place that care takes place, as we do life deeply with one another in gospel-centered community. This is because discipleship happens best in the context of relationships. When we do life together, we get to know each other’s needs and struggles, and we are able to serve one another as the Holy Spirit leads and equips us.

They ways in which we care for our body both inside and out of our community groups include benevolence, meals, and pastoral care.

Benevolence

Hard times hit us all. There are seasons when the weight of our obligations outweigh our ability to meet them. We would encourage you to first share this need with your community group, and invite them into your situation first. If you or someone you know are still in need of assistance, let us know here, and we will get back to you right away.

*We encourage our church family to prayerfully consider meeting the immediate and long-term needs of us around them in our neighborhoods and workplaces. If you would like to serve someone in our community but do not have the personal resources, contact your community group and contact us to request additional resources.

Pastoral Care

If you or a loved one is sick or recently grieving the loss of a loved one, do not hesitate to lean into our church family for support during this time. We encourage you to let your community group know and invite them to pray and support you first. If you need additional support or are not in a group, contact us.

Weddings

We believe that the gift of marriage is a blessing from God, and we love to help couples prepare for this life-long journey together. If you would like an Elder from our church to officiate your wedding or help you prepare for marriage through pre-marital counseling, please let us know!

Funerals

Our desire is to come alongside of you in this time of profound loss. If you would like to inquire about grief counseling or one of our Elders assisting with a memorial service, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Counseling

If you are seeking pre-marital, marriage, or grief counseling, contact us and one of our Elders will contact you shortly. We offer pastoral counseling and one-on-one discipleship relationships, but at this time we do not have professional counseling services at our church. However, if you contact us at the link above, we will do our best to refer you to a local, professional, biblical counselor.

Meals

Our meals team supports families and individuals in times of transition. If you or someone you know has recently had a baby, lost a loved one, moved, or encountered another significant life transition, contact our meals team at meals@gospelcc.org.
